Today is the elections in the UK, and I’m squeezing in a visit to the polls before I head off on my travels later today.
Don’t worry, this post isn’t going to get political on you; truth be told I’m not quite sure who I want to vote for yet, mostly because the thought of voting for either David Cameron or Ed Miliband makes me feel a little bit sick. Nick Clegg is slightly less vomit inducing but don’t even get me started on Nigel Farage. I haven’t been impressed with any of their campaigns, which seem to consist of trashing each other rather than actually discussing what they want to do. The Greens have been the best of a bad bunch so even though everyone says ‘it’s a wasted vote’, I think I’m going to stick to my guns this year and give them my vote. I see it as a vote of no confidence in the rest of the bunch.
Anyway, soapbox aside, I snuck in a mention of my travels because today I’m hitting the airport for my trip to Bangkok and Siem Reap. I’m beyond excited; we’ve had this trip planned for almost a year now and I can’t believe it’s finally here.
Speaking of Bangkok and Siem Reap, if you’ve ever been to either location and have any tips to share, would you be so kind as to leave a comment on this post? Also in the post I ask for recommendations about US based travel, so if you know anything about that either I’d also be grateful for any wisdom you’d care to share.
Right, best be off to catch that plane!
